Team Fly4aCure presents Rhythm 2020, a multicultural showcase hosted and performed by local Southern Maryland High School Students in their efforts to support The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Fly4aCure is an organization dedicated to raising awareness of blood cancers and raising funds for research to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

In 2017, Team Fly4aCure was founded by Samir and Saar Shah. This team competed in The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Student of the Year Competition. This is a seven-week fundraising competition dedicated to blood cancer research and supporting blood cancer patients. Raising more money than any other candidate in the country, the boys were named National Students of the Year.

This all started by just wanting to bring their local community together by hosting the first Southern Maryland Kite Festival but slowly grew into something that can benefit blood cancer patients everywhere and bring the possibility of a cure into sight.

Rhythm 2020 will be at Chopticon High School on February 22, 2020, from 5:30 p.m. to-8:30 p.m. and will showcase multicultural performances from local youth.
